    Good stuff, I love what Yager did with Spec Ops, so hoping they continue the good work.

    wait, what type of genre is this? all i got from the trailer was the bigger you are the less you think of others and when you hit them, your big ass ships sees it as space rubbish.

    not bad, but you know what'd make a great game - some old school Yamato.

    I was hoping for a sim (like Battlecruiser 3000)... I've no idea, but the comments on the youtube suggest it's a World of Tanks style f2p.

    These days I need AU servers for any online game I spend time with.

    I have read people are getting ~200ms and its 'playable' but I am still hesitant. Any further experience with this?

    Looks very good.
    But very similar to Fractured Space..
    Got the feeling there's another similar game too, but i can't remember what it is..(edit: Nope Fractured Space is the one i was thinking of)

    Will this be an online-only game?

    I've been playing for a while, imho its still not quite there.

    The gfx are very nice but the gameplay lacks depth, basically shoot at each other till the health bar hits 0, respawn and do it again.

    I'd like to see a bunch more ai driven targets and destructibles in the environments, defend the factory etc rather than just shoot each other for 10 minutes.

    Also the ship explosions are very underwhelming.

    Holy shit. I don't know how many years I've seen you posting for, but to me, you've always been "The Mawn". I JUST REALISED...

    The Man With No Name.

    FFS, I'm slow.

    Yeah the closed beta is fun, but definitely has a long way to go. Core gameplay itself is good, but the only real mode per se is TDM. It has really good squad role composition though, utilising the holy trinity of tank, heals and dps.

    Matchmaking has some bugs, BUT you can get a game, consistently under 5 minutes every time you queue, no matter the time of day, or day of the week.

    I can't say the same for Fractured Space, otherwise I'd never have come to look at Dreadnought.

    Different games though, Fractured Space is definitely a MOBA, whereas Dreadnought is a 3rd person team shooter.
